Last week our family went to Sesame Place. When I mentioned that we had been there to a friend her response was "With a two year old and a newborn? You are crazy." Crazy awesome, maybe.
The truth is it wasn't that hard because since the park is geared towards younger kids there are a lot of amenities available for families with young children. There are bathrooms, benches, snack vendors, and nursing stations throughout. They also have cabanas available for rent - which we were able to try out and they were a great place to change, recharge and get out of the sun for a bit. You can even have lunch delivered to your cabana!
We hit the park early and started with the water rides. There were some pretty awesome slides - but he was intimidated by most of the bigger attractions so we went in search of something more his speed. Big Bird's Rambling River was just right for him (and me) - he also enjoyed the Teeny Tiny Tidal Wave (mini wave pool) and Ernie's Waterworks. They are perfect for little kids his size - although I must say I'm excited to go back when he's big enough for some of the faster and splashier rides.

Just before calling it a day we stopped for an ice-cream cone - to end the day on an extra sweet note. The kid slept like a rock that night - and still talks about "where Bert and Ernie live." I'm really glad we had the opportunity to spend a fantastic summer day there.
